Jarrow Formula's Lutein, one of the best supplements you can use to protect your vision! This formula contains 20 mg of this eye-protecting nutrient. It works by protecting your eyes from damage caused by free radicals.
Lutein is the most abundant carotenoid found in fruits and vegetables, and is potent antioxidant, especially concentrated in the macula of the eye. Most Americans dont eat enough of this vital nutrient, found in vegetables like peas and kale. Since your body cant manufacture it, its important to get it from green leafy vegetable sources or by taking it in this quality source from Jarrow.
Some of the most valuable antioxidant protection against macular degeneration is supplied by carotenoids like this supplement, which help neutralize the free radicals that can damage the retina. It plays an important role in macular function by blocking the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays.
One study showed it helped increase macular pigment optical density, a reduction in the amount of blue light that reached the photoreceptors in the eye, reducing the oxidative damage that may be related to Macular Degeneration.
Jarrow Lutein Acts As A Natural Eyeshade
One of the main causes of macular degeneration appears to be sun damage to the sensitive tissue. This nutrient appears to act as a natural eyeshade, protecting the retina against too much light.

Lutein is an antioxidant carotenoid that occurs in nature with zeaxanthin. Dietary lutein and zeaxanthin concentrate in the eyes macula and lens, as well as the skin, breast and cervical tissue. Both lutein and zeaxanthin protect the macula from degeneration normally associated with aging and oxidative stress. The macula is located behind the lens of the eyes, and it is responsible for focus and color differentiation. Dark green, leafy vegetables are good sources of lutein and zeaxanthin, a carotenoid closely related to lutein. While the average American intake of lutein is only 2 mg per day, other population groups consume up to 20 to 25 mg per day.
Jarrow Formulas Lutein is extracted from marigold petals. Each softgel contains 20 mg elemental lutein from 40 mg lutein esters, which are naturally occurring, more stable and are well absorbed.
